What we're about

This is your essential book club for anyone looking for a laid-back time to meet new people and discuss books over drinks. This group is based in the town of Honolulu. We figured this club we would be a good excuse to try different bars and restaurants while discussing what we've read!

Members will occasionally be surveyed to select new books and venues. If you're interested in hosting or co-hosting a meeting about a specific book, contact the organizer.

We have also started a Books With A Buzz group on Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/815572-books-with-a-buzz). Everyone is welcome to join!

Since drinking is involved, please only join if you are over the age of 21.

American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins

Needs a location

Lydia Quixano Pérez lives in the Mexican city of Acapulco. She runs a bookstore. She has a son, Luca, the love of her life, and a wonderful husband who is a journalist. And while there are cracks beginning to show in Acapulco because of the drug cartels, her life is, by and large, fairly comfortable.

Even though she knows they’ll never sell, Lydia stocks some of her all-time favorite books in her store. And then one day a man enters the shop to browse and comes up to the register with a few books he would like to buy—two of them her favorites. Javier is erudite. He is charming. And, unbeknownst to Lydia, he is the jefe of the newest drug cartel that has gruesomely taken over the city. When Lydia’s husband’s tell-all profile of Javier is published, none of their lives will ever be the same.

Forced to flee, Lydia and eight-year-old Luca soon find themselves miles and worlds away from their comfortable middle-class existence. Instantly transformed into migrants, Lydia and Luca ride la bestia—trains that make their way north toward the United States, which is the only place Javier’s reach doesn’t extend. As they join the countless people trying to reach el norte, Lydia soon sees that everyone is running from something. But what exactly are they running to?
